Haskins Roundstone wins ‘Garden Centre of the Year’ following community backing
Haskins Garden Centre in Roundstone has won The Brighton Argus ‘Garden Centre of the Year 2021’ Award after being nominated by readers in the Sussex region.
Haskins’ Roundstone centre in Littlehampton, West Sussex, was successful after going up against other centres in the area including Up Country Garden and Country Store, Staverton Nursery, ESK Plants, Lime Cross Nursery and Hailsham, in The Brighton Argus Local Garden Centre of the Year competition.
The Brighton Argus, a leading regional Sussex newspaper, asked members of the local community to nominate their favourite garden centre in the area throughout March. Readers were then given the chance to vote for the overall winner which was announced earlier this week.
Nick Joad, General Manager of Haskins Roundstone, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have won this award and to be recognised by our local community in this way. It wouldn’t have been possible to achieve this without our wonderful customers and of course, our dedicated team.
“This award reinforces the important role that garden centres play in our community and the pandemic has only made this more apparent.
“We are so grateful for the ongoing support that our community has shown us throughout the challenging past year. We strive to deliver excellent customer service and always look at ways we can continue improving our services for future generations to enjoy.”
